Google announced today a new service called Google Sync that will push contacts and calendar to the iPhone via Exchange ActiveSync. Google Sync automatically replaces your contacts and events on your iPhone, which can be very dangerous if you are a “syncer”. It is still in beta, and as good as it looks, I’m not going to use this service because I think I am dependent enough on Google. I certainly don’t want them to handle all my contacts and calendars.
Now the question is: will Google offer push email for Gmail soon? They’re on the right track and I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw push Gmail coming to the iPhone in the next few months.
